Title IX - Sexual Misconduct and Interpersonal Violence Protocol
Miami University is committed to maintaining a healthy and safe working environment and to creating an environment that promotes responsibility, dignity, and respect in all matters. Unfortunately, faculty and staff may be victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence or stalking (Title IX offenses). In the vast majority of instances, the alleged perpetrator is not associated with our University; however, it is possible for these offenses to occur on campus or for the alleged perpetrator to be a visitor, guest, vendor/contractor, employee or student at Miami. Although most victims/survivors are women, men also can be victims. This Protocol is designed to provide information on the resources and support available to an employee when the employee is a victim of a Title IX offense, even if the offense occurred off campus. This Protocol also provides information on how to file a report if the offense occurred on campus or the alleged perpetrator is a visitor, guest, vendor/contractor, is employed by or enrolled at Miami.
